Chicago Cubs Lineup: The Rubber Match at Wrigley Field

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs and Cardinals are split at two wins a piece heading into tonight’s contest on Sunday Night Baseball (ESPN). Here’s David Ross’ lineup for the finale against the veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

1. Christopher Morel, CF
2. Willson Contreras, C
3. Ian Happ, LF
4. Frank Schwindel, 1B
5. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
6. Rafael Ortega, DH
7. Nico Hoerner, SS
8. Jason Heyward, RF
9. Nick Madrigal, 2B

SP: Justin Steele, LHP

Oh, look! Jason Heyward in right field. 

The Cubs lineup is pretty straight forward for the finale in Chicago, with the only decision points being Rafael Ortega at DH instead of Alfonso Rivas. Or similarly, Clint Frazier not in right field or DH, despite his .526 OBP since returning from the IL.

One day our pain will cease.

Wainwright has been very good this season (more on that in the Pre-Gamin’ post) and he’s been pretty close to split-neutral all year.
